will say both the f.b.i. and the department of defense, specifically d.o.d., for that matter all of us have a role to play in providing that policymakers, operators, etc. i also completely agree with i think underlying tenet of the bill that you passed yesterday, which recognizes the importance of partnership between the government. we certainly collectively cannot do it all. and we do need the help and assistance and cooperation of the civil sector. and so that's -- i guess that's all i'd say to answer the question. >> if each of you could just talk a little bit about the greatest cyberthreats from your perspectives. is it foreign governments? is it it terrorists? is it criminals? where is the biggest threat? >> let me start and others can contribute. any time you're assessing threat, there are obviously two dimensions. one is the capability, and the other dimension is intent. certainly from a capability standpoint in terms of ability --reek damage to the country wreak damage to the country, we are more concerned with the potential of the nation state, and obviously, we have called this ou
. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people believe that we need universal background checks. we have to make sure that our body, both the senate and house, take up this legislation. in the aftermath of yet another tragedy on patriots day, the most patriotic
came in was call director mueller at the f.b.i. to get an update on this. because obviously we -- there no familiar in america -- family in america that wants justice than the state department family, believe me. so i wanted to know where we are. and i think we are making progress. now, there's video as you-all know. we have identified people. and they are building a case. we are going through the tedious, laborious, and very difficult process of gaining evidence from the part of the country which is dangerous. and working in a place where the standards are different and the expectations are different. we are working through that. but i can guarantee you this. i think all of you know because of bob mueller's service, and peoplera years that passed a law to allow him to serve, there is no more dedicated or capable leader of the f.b.i. and there is nobody more committed to do this. i have confidence in that. i also have confidence in something else. this president of the united states made it clear once before that he would do what was necessary to bring somebody to justice. and
adjudicated mentally ill by the state of virginia. but those records were never transmitted to the f.b.i. to be included in a background check. and we know that the shooter in tucson fail a drug test -- failed a drug test, a disqualifying fact for somebody to be able to legally purchase firearms given a background check, but that information was never transmitted to the f.b.i., and so the few son shooter was not -- and so the tucson shooter was not prevented from buying weapons, even though he should have been disqualified if the background check system had been working the way it should. i believe the most appropriate response to the recent mass shootings tshootings is to maket our current laws involving mental illness, drug use, mental health adjudications are enforced more aggressively and more efficiently. but, at the same time, while we're trying to find a solution to these problems and not just engage in meaningless symbolism, we should not be making it harder for law-abiding citizens to exercise their constitutional rights under the second amendment. we can and we should embrace r
the d.h.s. or f.b.i. this bill already contains several levels of strong protections to n sure it improves cybersecurity without compromising our important civil liberties. but this bill will add a significant new privacy protection to that existing structure. again, madam chair, you can see the level of effort that we are doing here to protect privacy and civil liberties and still have a workable bill. with states like china, russia, iran, and north korea from getting into your networks and stealing your property. we have yet to find a single u.s. company that opposes this bill. in fact, we have the enthusiastic support of nearly every sector of the economy. because they are under assault from foreign cyberattacks and they need our help. and they need it now. companies and industry groups from across the country, including intel, the chipmaker, i.b.m., the internet security alliance, u.s. chamber of commerce, business round table, tech america, technet, companies of the silicon valley. u.s. telecom, nuclear energy institute, national association of manufacturers just to name a
said the f.b.i. is investigating this as an act of terrorism and the full force of the federal government will support the response and the federal investigation. there is no current evidence that the attack was part of a broader plot. but out of caution, we don't to keep in place enhanced security measures seen and unseen with coordination of state and local partners. we urge the american people to remain vigil legend and report any signs of suspicious activity to local law enforcement. we thank the people of boston for their response. we stand in solidarity with them and with everyone who has been making sure that the response, the recovery, and the investigation continue full force. beyond that, mr. chairman, i should not say anything in an unclassified setting except to reassure the committee that d.h.s. is put in full force into providing the f.b.i. with any and all assistance it requires in addition doing a number of other things with the city of boston. >> thank you. >> as you know, this year marks the 10th anniversary of the d.h.s., the largest creation of federal gover

[audience groans] meredith: ok, ouch. all right. you lost that 10,000, but hey, jumping the question brings you one question closer to the million. now just 12 away. "little toys" is the category. after launching its successful "hot wheels" line, mattel came out with "hot birds," a set of miniature what? boats, airplanes, motorcycles, trains. >> i'm gonna say "b," airplanes, final answer. meredith: you better know that, you retired flight attendant, you. put a little more money in that bank. you have 100 so far. we're gonna add another 500 to that. $600. ok, now 11 away from a million dollars.
